  1. The Navy doesn’t have enough funding. Hmmm. Basically, that’s been their view since, well, since Navy. The majority of the congressional funding for Ukraine is going to US defense contractors to build more weapons. But not for ships, thus Navy. Understand that the military services are the most powerful actors in US national security politics. They stand firmly between Congress and the executive. Neither one controls them. They get what they want, and mainly the only thing that constrains them is inter service rivalry, which they attempt to suppress as much as possible. Saagar did quote Bridge Colby, who is a very reliable source. The war on terror has dramatically distorted the national security (military) establishment in a way that minimizes its competitiveness vis-a-vis the PRC and Russia. Ukraine has done the same, because the war in Ukraine is basically a World War ONE (not even two) grunting war made stupid by Russia. So we are funding artillery war instead of a modern war. The things PRC and Russia fear the most. We are an airpower nation, and that’s what they fear and that’s what they cannot defend against. Note that in Ukraine, the Russian Air Force has proven to be utterly useless. So, in response, let’s BUILD MORE ARTILLERY to help Ukraine…

  2. The knowledge we are gaining about our battle strategies, intelligence apparatus, and the effectiveness of our military equipment in actual combat while helping Ukraine is invaluable. Saagar has no idea how valuable this knowledge actually is to our military. The money we have spent in Ukraine is worth every penny and more.

  3. This is nonsense and that's easy to see, what exactly are we using ordance on at this time, we are not in a war, are we just blowing stuff up to be blowing stuff up? if so stop problem solved. And btw is this where the military budget is being wasted just randomly blowing stuff up? That reporter should have asked for context like were is al our existing ordance going.

  4. Soledar, formerly known as Karlo-Libknekhtovsk, is a city in Bakhmut Raion, which is located in Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine, has now fallen into Russias hands thanks to the infamous Wagner Group. A group of ruthless neo-nazi war criminals named after the German composer Richard Wagner, due to his passion for the Third Reich (Wagner being Adolf Hitler's favorite composer). So much for the Anti Nazi campaign promise.

  5. It seems naive to think the US is running low on weapons. Do you really think our stock pile could be depleted in a year long proxy war? And if it did what does that tell you about actual preparedness for some real shit. Sounds like to me it's just the military heads reaching into the media to push their own agenda whatever it may be. Usually you guys would say something like that but I guess if you agree with them it doesn't elicit the same reaction

  6. FFS Surovikin was not 'replaced' or 'demoted'. The staff is being consolidated because there is a very large offensive incoming that will require coordination between multiple fronts, so three theatre commanders are being appointed under the overall direction of the Russian Commander in Chief.Surovikin is still in charge of the aerospace forces, and is theatre commander of donbass and still deputy to the commander in chief.

  7. Ukraine is disappearing before your eyes. Yet you still choose not to see it. Rubble wasteland that will never be rebuilt. You choose to not recognize the true inventors, producers, architects of this. Or you agree with it. Either way, you are on the wrong side of this and still believe your own BS propaganda.

  8. Saagar, What ceasefire? They just lied, it's also because Ukrainian artillery has destroyed storages of artillery shells. Also, Krystal the "black" market for Western art is debunked russian propaganda. Ukraine needs tanks and airpower and this war would be done by April/May. Tanks are on the way, They just need at least Polish Mig29s currently parked in Germany.
